So a couple things:
1. On the box where you were able to download eccodes from Anaconda and
install manually...could you try doing that with pygrib as well and avoid
2. As far as building pygrib, I don't think you actually need to do any
building/linking against png/jasper/openjpeg for the interface where all you're
For that interface, based on my testing, all you need is to have eccodes
compiled/linked against openjpeg/jasper and/or png (and even those are only to
support GRIB using special compression methods). I actually have an open issue
on pygrib about this (well, compiling again openjpeg):
As far as I can tell, pygrib is only building itself against jasper, etc. to
use g2clib, which is only needed for `ncepgrib2`, which I'm not sure you need?
My advice would be to build pygrib itself only against your copy of eccodes
(skipping jpeg and png). If it builds, I'd see if it complains when you try to
open your GRIB files.
